Date:12/4/2008

FREMONT, Calif.,Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Velos, Inc., the recognized leader and trusted resource for clinical trials management information systems, today announced that it has signed an agreement with the University of Kansas Medical Center (KU Medical Center). KU Medical Center will deploy Velos eResearch in a comprehensive, system-wide roll-out that supports the regulatory, administrative, financial and clinical information needs of the institution's clinical research programs.

KU Medical Center will implement Velos eResearch over a two-year period. The objective of the implementation is to provide medical researchers with state-of-the-art systems to support all major facets of clinical research including IRB, clinical data management, electronic data capture, biospecimen management, patient self-reporting, study administration, budgeting, charge capture, and billing.

"We are very pleased to make this announcement," said John S. McIlwain, president and CEO of Velos, Inc., "and we are gratified that KU Medical Center has chosen a deployment approach that acknowledges the need for institution-wide control and roll-out, balanced with deep support of individual research and departmental needs."

"This strategic deployment of an enterprise-wide, clinical research system infrastructure reflects our mission of leadership in the discovery of new knowledge and the improvement of research, education, and patient care," stated Matthew Mayo, PhD, Center for Biostatistics and Advanced Informatics professor and chair, Department of Biostatistics. "We believe that Velos eResearch will deliver the informatics power to further our efficiency and quality improvement."

There is no practical limit to the number of protocols KU Medical Center may choose to manage through Velos. Velos eResearch also supports full outcomes management for patients not on clinical trials, allowing investigators a one-stop experience for research data collection and management. By designing to accommodate a range of standards, dictionaries, taxonomies and ontologies in health care, Velos has been able to serve the extremely diverse needs of clinicians and researchers in varying specialties across the research enterprise. At KU, the roll-out will support not only the KU Medical Center but also its affiliates and research partners across the state of Kansas, nationally, and internationally.

"KU Medical Center has worked with Velos at a departmental level for several years, so they are already familiar with our capabilities and commitment to product innovation," continued McIlwain. "We applaud the foresight of the University of Kansas Medical Center as they take an all-inclusive, strategic approach to leveraging information system infrastructure to support excellence in clinical research."
